The Holiday Cottage by The Sea by Holly Martin

3.5 Star 

Tori Graham is in need of a holiday. Trying to piece her heart back together after losing the love of her life, she escapes to Blossom Cottage, with its picturesque views of the sea. And plans to spend the summer in gorgeous Sandcastle Bay, where her best friend Melody Rosewood lives. 

Finding herself embracing life in the coastal community, Tori starts to fall in love with Sandcastle Bay and its welcoming cast of residents. But that’s not all she begins to fall for, as Tori is swept away by Aidan’s genuine heart and mischievous sense of humour. The attraction between them is undeniable, but will a simple holiday romance be enough? 

As Tori’s stay in Sandcastle Bay comes to an end she has a tough decision to make…. Has her heart found a new place to call home?

A quick and easy tale of loss and love this book will make you feel hopefulness and an intense desire to operate your own farm by the sea. 

Not so much a novel of surprises but I still found myself engrossed in the story and particularly the complicated nature of Tori and her best friend Melody's friendship.   Their relationship was deep rooted and I loved their loyalty towards each other.  The addition of Aiden didn't hurt as he seemed to be a little bit perfect and certainly not someone to dismiss. 

This book was charm personified and a good holiday read but I wish it had been longer and had a chance to delve deeper and follow them a bit longer.  The characters have so much potential so I'm glad that this appears to be the first book in a series for this cast- I hope we follow these particular people up again!
